Projecting that we lose 4 games next year, as we did in 2009 when JJ and Lee were in their 2nd year (as ...

Which players that left early keep us from getting blown out?
You cant count Jrs that left 2 years ago, because their eligibility is up anyway. You also cant count 1st round draft picks, because no one was expecting them to return.
So I'm curious as to who is it that would have been a differen...
